Reviewer Notes

  • I would definitely use this video with novice interpreters to work on receptive fingerspelling and numbers during interpreting work.
  • This is a good video for practicing directional signs and utilizing pronouns for various people with and without knowing genders. These are current topics so most people have the ELK to talk about these comfortably. The pace is manageable and you can practice creating cohesive sentences.

About this Video

The interactive videos in this series were created in partnership during the Graduation to Certification program through a collaboration between the CATIE Center and the Duluth Branch of the NAACP. These unscripted conversations were interpreted by novice interpreters in the GTC program and the video was edited to the best of our ability to remove the interpretation to create practice material. There may be some legacies of the original interpretation such as repetition due to the original interpreter asking for clarification or sometimes all of the interpretation may not be edited out due to overlapping communication.
